A Child with The Blues - Erykah Badu

Could have never known that when losin
Could hurt you so very bad
Could have never known that when chosin
Would make you so very sad

I don't know what to do
I just feel so confused
I'm a child with the blues

Take your time, smell the flowers
Make a smile for yourself
Girl, don't make livin' so hard,
So hard, So hard, I keep tellin' myself
Feels like I'm goin' nowhere
Sometimes it ain't all damn fair
A child with the blues

Sisters, sisters
I know you're watchin me
There are a lot of games reachin for you constantly
When you think you're grown
You're entering the unknown
Baby, check yourself
Brace yourself
Protect yourself
Face yourself

Feels like my life is just existing
And I'm missing someone
It's hard to replace the simple fact
cause my lover is gone, gone on
Never too young to pay your dues,
And if you're walkin in my shoes
You're a child with the blues
so blue, so blue..

I can't stop the flow, can't stop it
Of wet tears in my eyes
And if you're any of the many kind of women in pain,
Woman in pain, realize, realize
The same emotion we share
Movin fast but goin nowhere
Like a child with the blues

A child with the blues
a child with the blues blue

A child with the blues, ooh
